Efficacy of three anticoagulant rodenticides against Rattus rattus and Meriones libycus under laboratory conditions

Mohamed A. Aldakhil

Abstract:
Three anticoagulant rodenticides were used against Rattus rattus and Meriones libycus in choice and no choice feeding tests under laboratory conditions. In choice feeding tests, brodifacoum (0.005%) and chlorophacinone (0.005%) were more effective (P<0.05) than coumatetrahyl (0.0375%) against R. rattus. Brodifacoum (0.005%) and coumatetrahyl (0.0375%) were more effective (P<0.05) than chlorophacinone (0.005 %) against M. libycus. In no choice feeding tests, coumatetrahyl (0.0375%) and brodifacoum (0.005%) were more effective than chlorophacinone (0.005%) against M. libycus It was concluded that brodifacoum (0.005%) was more effective against R. rattus while, coumatetrahyl (0.0375%) was more effective against M. libycus.
